Hosted by Code of the West Productions of California, the Turlock Gun Show will be returning to the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds with over 150 tables and 50 vendors.
“We have more than 50 vendors and over 150 tables. Most of the product displayed for purchase will include firearms (long guns and handguns), ammunition, knives, stun guns, pepper spray, shooting range/hunting related supplies (range bags, gun cases, gun safes, ammo cans, etc..). We even have a beef jerky vendor!” exclaimed Code of the West Promoter Jason Smith.
Members of the public are allowed to bring a firearm to the show, however, it must be unloaded with the magazine removed. This will be checked at the “Gun Inspection,” where it will be fit with a gun tie to prevent operation during the show. A tag will also be attached to the gun with the owner’s name and driver’s license number.
All local and state laws are followed for purchase of a firearm at the Turlock Gun Show just as they would be at a gun store.
Although Proposition 63 passed in California, the majority of the laws will be going into effect gradually over the coming years. Smith acknowledged that Prop 63 will not have much of an impact at the show this weekend.
The Turlock Gun Show will be held Feb. 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to Feb. 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Stanislaus County Fairgrounds, located 900 North Broadway Avenue.
General admission is $10, and entry is good for both days of the show. The event is family friendly and children 12 and under are admitted for free with a paying adult.
